I took this the other day, on a walk with Tess the Collie. Looking at it, later, I thought ‘What was that?’ I’d forgotten where I’d taken it, and I took me a minute to reconstruct where we’d been.

On that basis, I thought, it would make a fine what is it? The kind of photo people used to shoot, deliberately, to be a puzzle… on Sunday mornings, when we’re supposed to have a bit of time on our hands…Hmm.

So, it’s Sunday morning… and if you fancy a go, tell me in the comments. Bottle of something fizzy for the best response… Sort of!

And the Answer Is:

(The photo is of part of the old wooden bridge across the River Kent. It used to insulate the gunpowder works from the rest of the village. The gunpowder works closed in the 1930s, but the bridge remains as an important footbridge. With its iron-reinforced girders, it can support up to 25 pedestrians at a time… though it wobbles and no-one seems inclined to test it!)
(A close-up of the wooden structure. Beneath, it is supported by iron rods)
(Above: the original photo. Taken through the wooden diagonals and pointing at the sky’s reflection in the water – today’s photo, as above)

Jaye from Books and Bonsai gave a great answer, but Di from Pensitivity 101 got it on the nose with the word ‘Bridge’. My virtual bottle of bubbly goes to her.

This was simply a one-off promoted by a curious photo, but if there’s an appetite, I could run others from time to time.

A big thank you to everyone who took part.
